Which strong women would I
choose to Reign the Earth with?

Of course, I would have to pick two of the most notable women that have impacted my life in the most positive, fiercest, and strongest way: Amelia Earhart and Buffy Summers from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

My obsession with Amelia Earhart and her mysterious whereabouts, began in grade school. I checked out every book I could find on her in my school library and county library. Not only did I learn about her historical aviation flying adventures, but I also found out that as a young adult and throughout her whole life she always faced her challenges head on. Amelia not only challenged and pushed herself, but she challenged societal standards and pioneered a leeway for women to accomplish their dreams. I would love to have a fierce spirited adventurer like Amelia by my side if I were to reign the earth.

I am a huge Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan and some of you may already know that it is my all-time favorite show. This show was the first media outlet to show me that women can be spunky, determined, witty, and badass fighters. Having the Chosen One at my side during my reign of earth would not only provide me a helping hand when it came to fighting off bad guys, but Buffy would never hold back any sarcasm or words of wisdom. Hey, this girl died twice, and she still kept fighting the good fight and saving the world a lot.

  1. Great picks! I went through an Earhart phase myself in grade school. Eventually it gave way to mummification, but nontheless, I found her to be really inspiring. Much to my friends annoyance, I have yet to watch Buffy! It’s not on any streaming though, so I’ll just have to wait it out. 🙂
